As Wikipedia states about Joan Wolff, ” Joan Salvato Wulff [is] known as the First Lady of fly-fishing, [and] has been casting since she was a school girl in 1937. She was National Casting Champion from 1943-1960 in distance casting against an all-male competition; she made a record cast of 161 feet.”

So credentials aside, I also admire her as a writer and woman. As she says, “The woods and waters of the outdoors became my church, a place where I could examine my thoughts and feel I was connected to all living things. This feeling is especially strong she, with rod in hand, I am wading a river for trout or salmon…where everything makes sense, where there is nothing but truth. There will be no disenchantment with this church.”
